Would it be OK to do this in a deliverable of the HTML WG or the Web Apps WG?
As noted in previous comments, regardless of which namespace HTML nodes are
assigned, DOM-to-DOM transform in a browser with method='html' needs to deviate
from the XSLT 1.0 spec by ASCII-lowercasing the local names in order to be
compatible with existing content, so at least that behavior needs a
specification home.
